'Paddock to Plate' Program Extends Health Curriculum

Fraser Primary School successfully introduced the 'Paddock to Plate' program to combine health lessons with a student vegetable garden and a nutritionist providing advice on healthy balanced eating. The program extends to the wider school community with family and friends joining students to gain hints and advice from a visiting chef on creating delicious and nutritious meals.

The program is a positive response by Fraser Primary School to the Directorate's 2015 Public School Food and Drink Policy and the ACT Healthy Weight Action Plan. The 'Paddock to Plate' coordinator, year 1/2 teacher, Todd McCoy, stated, 'Health is as vital as the key curriculum areas. 'Paddock to Plate' supports our Kids Matter philosophy and we are looking to provide them with every element they need to prosper.'
